Subfertile freshman sire Starspangledbanner, who made headlines in June with two winners at the Royal Ascot meeting, will rejoin the roster at Coolmore Stud's Irish base in 2015.
Dual grade I winner Verrazano will remain in training in 2014, rather than retiring to stand at Ashford Stud near Versailles, Ky.
Coolmore's talented stallion Hennessy reportedly died of an apparent heart failure Aug. 9 at Haras La Mission in Argentina. The 14-year-old son of Storm Cat had shuttled to South America for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season.
Current Irish riding champion Jamie Spencer has quit his position as stable jockey for trainer Aidan O'Brien, leaving behind one of the highest profile jobs in European racing.
Be My Guest, a former leading English/Irish sire, died Feb. 19 at the age of 30.
